Apache Subversion

It's a relatively simple version control system so it works great for an individual or small team (less than 10 people). But if you have a medium to large team, especially one with members distributed over a large geographic area, or one where individuals need to be able to work "offline" without access to a central server, Apache Subversion will likely not be the best choice.
Also, if you're maintaining an open-source project where outside people will be interacting with your code repository, git is probably a better choice because it's becoming the de-facto standard these days and what most developers are familiar with.

Travis CI

If your company embraces open source and uses a lot of the workflows that are prevalent in startups, Travis CI is indispensable. It comes with a lot of tools that thrive in that ecosystem. It probably won't be appreciated by companies that are traditionally more closed where everything is behind a firewall.

Pros

Apache Subversion

  • Revision control done properly - you have end to end visibility of all changes in the project.
  • Conflict resolution - visually highlighting the differences helps to track down the problem.
  • Being open source and very popular.
  • We are using SVN hosted in our network - it is very stable, we had almost zero downtime in 4 years.
  • Rollbacks are made simple and easy to use.

Travis CI

  • It is very simple to configure a range of environment versions and settings in a simple YAML file.
  • It integrates very well with Github, Bitbucket, or a private Git repo.
  • The Travis CI portal beautifully shows you your history and console logs. Everything is presented in a very clear and intuitive interface.

Cons

Apache Subversion

  • Distributed development - I've never worked in an environment where distributed development (developers widely scattered geographically) was a factor, but that's why git exists.
  • Merging - Merging of code from one branch to another can be painful, especially if it's not done frequently. (On the other hand, doing merges is one of the reasons I get a nice salary, so I can't complain too much!)
  • Acceptance - Let's face it, git is what "all the cool kids are using." If you've got a bunch of developers fresh out of school, they'll probably know git and not Subversion.

Travis CI

  • I think they could have a cheaper personal plan. I'd love to use Travis on personal projects, but I don't want to publish them nor I can pay $69 a month for personal projects that I don't want to be open source.
  • There is no interface for configuring repos on Travis CI, you have to do it via a file in the repo. This make configuration very flexible, but also makes it harder for simpler projects and for small tweaks in the configuration.

While there are interesting alternatives, such a GIT, Subversion has been a breath of fresh air compared to its predecessors like CVS or Microsoft Source Safe (now called Team Foundation Server). Its ease of use and high adoption rate is going to keep me using this product for years to come.

TravisCI hasn't had much changes made to its software and has thus fallen behind compared to many other CI/CD applications out there. I can only give it a 5 because it does what it is supposed to do but lacks product innovation.

They really need to ramp up on their documentation. Otherwise, Travis CI is really great and they support open source initiatives. Being a proponent of open source, using their service helps them improve their work and keep improving their services. Their tool has helped improve open source software and the free tier makes it a great tool for teams with smaller budgets.

Alternatives Considered

Apache Subversion

We chose SVN over the other alternatives due to it having better tool support and integrations with our other development systems such as Atlassian Jira, and Bamboo. Developers are also more familiar with SVN and there are more resources available online if we ever run into any problems.

Travis CI

Jenkins is much more complicated to configure and start using. Although, one you have done that, it's extremely powerful and full of features. Maybe many more than Travis CI. As per TeamCity, I would never go back to using it. It's also complicated to configure but it is not worth the trouble. Codeship supports integration with GitHub, GitLab and BitBucket. I've only used it briefly, but it seems to be a nice tool.

Return on Investment

Apache Subversion

  • I cannot speak on ROI but Apache Subversion is definitely the best version control tool for a project of any size. It serves the user's purpose in a complete satisfactory way.
  • As it is open source, there is no need to spend any amount on it, which makes it an even more easier choice.
  • The most negative impact Apache Subversion can have on you is that you will not want to use any other version control tool after using it.

Travis CI

  • It's improved my ability to deliver working code, increasing my development velocity.
  • It increases confidence that your own work (and those of external contributors) does not have any obvious bugs, provided you have sufficient test coverage.
  • It helps to ensure consistent standards across a team (you can integrate process elements like "go lint" and other style checks as part of your build).
  • It's zero-cost for public/open source projects, so the only investment is a few minutes setting up a build configuration file (hence the return is very high).
  • The .travis.yml file is a great way for onboarding new developers, since it shows how to bootstrap a build environment and run a build "from scratch".
